Pink Strat is the debut album from Canadian musician Bahamas - a gifted guitarist and musician who's bolstered the work of Feist, Hayden and Jason Collett. Cut from the same cloth as Al Tuck or Peter Elkas, Bahamas is a sleepy, soulful project for an artist with great instincts and the will to execute deceptively simple music with knowing taste. Five years in the making, Pink Strat finds Bahamas in a pleasant yet emergent state with a promising future ahead. It features the popular single \"Whole Wide World\".
